Devil Worshipper "Music For The Endtimes"

Ltd Digipack CD / Digital Album. Out December 14, 2018 through I, Voidhanger Records

Tireless and always provocative, the American musician known as Matron Thorn is responsible for some of the most audacious extreme metal of our times, offered through many of his projects including Ævangelist, Death Fetishist and Præternatura. DEVIL WORSHIPPER is the newest one, and it has been chosen to take Matron Thorn's artistic visions to unparalleled heights of hallucinating sonic violence, thanks also to the bestial, schizophrenic vocal performance provided by Fr.A.A. (from Portugal's Tod Huetet Uebel) and the female, ethereal counterpoint of Erethe Arashiel (Vaee Solis).

For DEVIL WORSHIPPER's debut full-length album, “Music For The Endtimes”, Matron Thorn brings to the table a handful of rusty riffs and dissonant, sick melodies. Their primitive thrust recalls the old-school of black metal, but the band totally transfigures them into some sort of gurgling industrial black'n'roll, where layers upon layers of trance-inducing guitars, serpentine bass grooves, paroxysmal screams and martial rhythms hammer the listener on the head till reality crumbles, revealing a nauseating yet fascinating abstract dimension of sin, depravation and oblivion.

Featuring guest contributions from Kabukimono and from Sebastian M. of AUROCH and MITOCHONDRION fame, DEVIL WORSHIPPER's “Music For The Endtimes” is as terrifying and exhausting as an exorcism. It syringes our unconsciousness into Satan's purulent veins, and spirals it into an unforgettable and disorienting drug trip on the evil side.

Devil Worshipper's premiere track can now be heard through No Clean Singing - Melancholy Loves the Dark Premiere

"As manifested through the song we’re premiering today — “Melancholy Loves the Dark” — the music of Devil Worshipper is violent, unnerving, and frighteningly hallucinatory. It sets the teeth on edge, bites down on the neck, floods the mind with psychoactive substances, and the veins with poison. In some respects it becomes cacophonous, especially in the riotous array of vocal expressions, which encompass wrenching proclamations, wild cries, terrible roars, and mind-flensing shrieks, and the shrill, searing leads rise up like fiery mists and then burn in cascading waves.

You probably won’t see this coming from the haunting reverb-drenched notes and head-moving drum beats at the beginning, but you feel it coming through the appearance of more urgent syncopated riffing. The air of tension and turmoil grows, eventually by orders of magnitude, subsides, and then drives again with the dark pulse of the bass and the adamant boom of the drums. The song thunders and jackhammers as it crescendos in pain, and even becomes magisterial as well as otherworldly."



"The album features artwork by H.V. Lyngdal and layout by Francesco Gemelli. Sebastien Montesi composed and performed the additional guitar leads on “Fornicating Angel”, “Melancholy Loves the Dark”, and “Throat of the False Prophet”. The album will be released digitally and in a limited edition digipack CD, accompanied by a booklet with the lyrics."

Available on Dec 14 through I, Voidhanger Records.
